Big Apple Circus – LUMINOCITY – Cunningham Park, Queens – May 18 thru June 15th, 2014

There is nothing like seeing a show you love a second time!

I photographed the Big Apple Circus show when it opened at the Lincoln Center Bandshell in the fall of 2013. It was a terrific show!

And it got even better!

Here are some photographs I took of the show on Opening day (Sunday, 5/18) at Cunningham Park, Queens. It is a beautiful site. You can relax in the park, talk a walk and then go see the circus…It also happens to be ‘warm’ out which adds to the novelty.
